The following birds are available for sale at this time. They are priced so the average person can afford them. So don't pass up some good birds just because they're not priced at several hundred dollars each. If you're at the other end of the financial spectrum, you need to realize that these are pedigreed animals and not street pigeons. The day of the five-dollar pigeon is long gone. They are priced so I can receive some reasonable return on the investment I have made in feed, time caring for them, etc.

What is a pigeon really worth? The value of a pigeon depends on three factors, and you can read about them here.

You will find some rare-colored birds among those listed. It is important to remember that we are a FLYING loft, not a COLOR loft. Our rare colors are required to fly right with the other birds. We sell youngsters that we raise out of our flyers, but we will seldom sell the rare-colored flyers themselves because we will be using them later as breeders.

I am selling pigeons, not paper, but almost all of those listed below have extensive pedigrees. I will provide whatever pedigree information I have on each bird listed. Feel free to email me and request an electronic copy of the pedigree of any bird listed here.

PLEASE NOTE: 2012 saw another significant increase in postal rates. Therefore, if birds are to be shipped to you (shipping to destinations in the USA only), the shipping charge will be $55 for one or two birds, $75 for 3 or 4 birds, $100 for 5 or 6 birds, and $120 for 7 or 8 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (Larger boxes not only cost more, but they also mean even more weight, hence the jump in shipping costs as the number of birds increases.) More than 8 birds will require a second box.

Payment can be made via money order (I do not accept personal checks) or you can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below. Paypal is preferred.

1.

2013 recessive opal bar hen. This is an unflown sister to "Snake River" aka "Little Snake", winner of 1st at 210 miles and 4th place at 130 miles. Parents are my current foundation breeding pair among my opals and cherries. It is my own family but is heavy in HVR, Janssen and VanHee lineage. Full pedigree. Special note: Her nestmate (also a hen) is also available at the same price. Price reduced: $75

2. 2009 blue bar Janssen cock, "Blue Miracle" family, right out of our breeding loft. Sire of a race winner for Swaney Acre Loft in 2013. We'd like to keep him but we have found it necessary to let go of some of our "more mature" breeders in order to make room for some recent purchases. Mike Ganus once published a photo of "Blue Miracle" with the headline "The Greatest Janssen Racing Pigeon in History ?". One may argue about that claim, but there is no doubt that "Blue Miracle" proved himself to be one of the very best. This cock no. 5980, has proven himself here as a prolific breeder and an excellent parent.He has "Blue Miracle" in his pedigree 3 times, and Granger's Diamond twice. Also appearing in his background are "Champion 969", "Charel", "Super Crack 699", "015" and many others. Full pedigree. Price: $200
3. 2013 Red Dworek cock directly from the breeding loft. Sire was purchased from Barry Venn and dam was raised by me. Sire is a grandson of Rich Dworek's famous "609"; sire also appears farther back on the dam's side. Dam is a daughter of a race winner on one side and the granddaughter of a 300-mile winner on the other side. Since dam is a yellow check, this cock also carries dilute. He has two youngsters entered in the OCR race in Cleveland, OH. Price reduced: $50
4. Positively gorgeous recessive opal hen , no. 37000. This is an unflown late hatch; but besides being one of the most beautiful pigeons you will find in a racing loft she is also a full sister to a 200-mile winner and also sister to another bird that was 2nd @ 125 miles. I keep telling myself I need to keep this pigeon for breeding (and I still might do so), but when I look at the size of my flock I try to tell myself I don't need her. Price reduced: $100
5. 2010 dilute dominant opal hen, flew 5 races out to 255 miles. Sire is Janssen/HVR, down from “Snoop Chris”, a 200-mile winner. Dam is a granddaughter of Mike Radkovic’s “LAR”, a multiple winner and 600-mile day bird. 2 children have been banded for this year’s GNEO race. Price reduced: $75.
6. 2012 Silver cock no. 2578 from the flying team. He was not raced as a young bird but was trained out to 50 miles several times. Last year he flew 120 and 190 miles as an old bird and flew the one race of 120 miles that our club flew this year. Sire is a race winner and also flew out to 300 miles as a young bird. Dam is Blue Miracle Janssen and is a daughter of "Houdini Junior." Price reduced: $50

SALE PENDING

SPECIAL OFFER! - DIRECT FROM THE BREEDING LOFT - PROVEN PAIR OF DREAMBOY JANSSENS.

2008 Blue bar cock and 2010 blue check drizzle hen. In 2013 they raised a diploma winner and have produced several young that have flown consistently for us locally and in futurities. Cock was purchased from Erik Hall via iPigeon. He is an inbred grandson of "Dreamboy"; mother is a daughter of Dreamboy mated to his half-sister and sire is a grandson of Dreamboy. Hen was bred by me; she is out of a grandson of Dreamboy and a hen that is Blue Miracle Janssen on one side and Janssen from Ralph Viafora on the other side. This pair is for sale ONLY because I am engaged in a serious reduction of breeders as I get older and find it harder to take care of so many pigeons. Price: $300 for the pair, or $175 each if sold individually. - Sale Pending (SR)
